The Carriage

I have at all times thought with my whole body and my whole life. I do not know what purely intellectual problems are .... You know these things by way of thinking, yet your thought is not your experience but the reverberation of the experience of others; as your room trembles when a carriage passes. I am sitting in that carriage, and often am the carriage itself.

Friedrich Nietzsche, Gesammelte Werke, XXI, 81; Posthumous notes about The Dawn.
